WILDWOOD, MO/May 17, 2017 (STLRealEstate.News) Construction is underway for a new subdivision in the west county community of Wildwood.

Nearly 200 single-family homes are being built along Highway 100 near Route 109.  This residential development called The Villages at Brightleaf is a team effort between St. Louis-area based companies Consort Homes and Fischer & Frichtel.

We’ve done deals in the past and we’re friends.  It’s a good project and so we thought we’d partner with a company we think is compatible with us.”  Said Ken Stricker, President and CEO of Consort Homes.

The builders recently bought the 78.5 acres of land for the development from the family of Bill Jones Sr. A price tag for the purchase of the land was not disclosed.

The Villages at Greenleaf will consist of five unique villages, with four collection plans.

The main appeal of The Villages at Brightleaf is its close proximity to Wildwood Town Center.  “It’s probably one of the biggest development projects for residential purposes that’s been proposed around Town Center,” explains Chirs DeGuentz, Vice-President of Development and Construction for Fischer & Frichtel.

DeGuentz adds that residents will be within walking distance to Wildwood Town Center as well as Wildwood Park and elementary schools. In addition, the subdivision will be connected to walking trails.

The neighborhood itself will be built to the architectural character and standards of Town Center in terms of landscaping and street lighting.” DeGuentz explains.

Some of the new home sites will be laid it out in the “neo-traditional” style with alleys between back yards.

Phase 1 began in March with a completion date expected by late summer or early fall. Phase 2 is scheduled to begin in early 2018. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2021, according to Striker.

The home prices will start in the upper $200,000 range to $800,000.
